How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal treats unwanted body hair by using a laser to target unwanted hair follicles. This is a medical procedure that requires specific training to perform.
During laser hair removal, a pulsing beam of light sends heat through your skin and into the hair follicles. This heat deactivates your hair follicles, preventing future growth. Although this procedure effectively reduces hair growth, you may need multiple treatments to achieve long-lasting results.
What areas can laser hair removal treat?
The team of medical professionals at Gynecology Specialists uses lasers to remove unwanted hair from the following areas:
- Bikini area
- Arms and legs
- Upper lip and chin
How effective is laser hair removal?
You should notice results immediately after your first laser hair removal treatment. However, most people need multiple treatments to remove all the hair in any given area. That's because hair follicles cycle through active and dormant periods, and the laser only treats active follicles.
The team at Gynecology Specialists works with you to create a laser hair removal plan that’s best for your needs. Depending on your unique hair and skin types, you should remain hair-free for several months, or even years, after treatment.
When your hair does eventually grow back, it should be finer, more sparse, and lighter in color than it was before. To maintain your smooth, hair-free skin, you may need to return for maintenance treatments once or twice a year.
What should I expect from a laser hair removal treatment?
First, one of the professional staff at Gynecology Specialists prepares you for laser treatment. They start by cleansing your skin of excess dirt or oil and providing protective eyewear.
The laser that we use is the fastest and most effective technology. Patients will see a difference after just one treatment.
Laser hair removal is a painless procedure, but you may feel an intermittent warm, prickly sensation. Side effects are minor and usually subside after a few hours or days. Common side effects of laser hair removal include redness, swelling, and mild discomfort.
